Natalie’s Story

This school was created and has continued to flourish because I made every mistake there was when I thought that my daughter was cute enough to model and do commercials. I am a mother of a now 22 year old daughter. When my daughter was 5, I attempted to get her an agent and get her in the “biz”. She was really cute and very animated. What I did not consider was her shy personality (only around others) and her mule like personality (and I say that lovingly).

Everyone told us she reminded them of Brook Shields when she was young. I thought why not give it a shot. I had her when I was 37, did not even think about what college would cost, so I thought that if she booked a commercial or two, she’d have a leg up on tuition.
